Keeping things healthy and light with these Summer Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. Oven-roasted sweet potatoes filled with healthy and delicious quinoa salad with avocado and Kalamata olives. Finishing the potatoes with feta adds welcome brininess and saltiness. Perfect for lunch or a light dinner. The dish can be made vegetarian by substituting vegan cheese for the feta.

Sweet potatoes are a superfood packed with vitamins A and C and fiber. I like baking them whole in the oven to keep the cooking easy. Give sweet potatoes a good scrubbing, prick with a fork, then rub with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper all over. Bake the potatoes for 35 to 45 minutes or until they are fork-tender. Meanwhile, mix the cooked quinoa and remaining ingredients in a large bowl and gently toss. This recipe calls for 1 cup of cooked quinoa. If you need to start with uncooked quinoa, you need ⅓ cup of uncooked quinoa and ⅔ cup of water. Place the quinoa and water in a saucepan together and bring to a boil, then cover and simmer. Cook for about 10-15 minutes or until the water is all cooked out. To serve, slice the sweet potatoes in half and top with the quinoa salad. Garnish with fresh herbs of choice if you wish!
